I think a Husky is around the corner.

Recommended Posts

Well I just took out a 401K loan and am going down to the dealer in Reno tomorrow to put a down payment on a TE510. I rode a CRF450 and a WR450F and then a TE510 and now , well I just gotta have one. This will be the most expensive bike Ive owned, I really hope Im not making a mistake!

DAMN YOU BOB! :naughty:

Taking $ from an appreciating asset to buy a rapidly depreciating asset is not a sign of sharpness?

Lets see, pay interest to a bank or pay interest to myself. :naughty:

There is about $1400 of interest on $8000 in 4 years on my loan that goes directly back into my 401K, (should I have got a different type of line of credit and given someone else that $1400)If I had the cash on hand I wouldnt get a loan but all my extra money gets saved into my 401K, kind of like a money making savings account.

I think I would rather pay myself.

and now we can compare jetting notes. JD has a kit for the 450/510. I'm still on my stock needle, but one clip up and down a size on the main and pilot jets. Seems to work for 4000 ft, winter temps.

I'll be trying a blue needle set up soon.........his kit comes with two needles , blue and red, a 45 pilot jet and a 172 and 175 mains. the stock 510 jets are a 55 low speed jet and a 185 main. the stock needle is at 5th clip with 2.0 Fuel screw turns.

Oh well more on jetting later.

Make sure the dealer installs the lights and tailight for no cost. the lights come in a box. You are buying a TE, not a TC with lights in a box. so tell him he installs the lights and digital odometer.

Buy a spare set of rear brakes the day you pick up your bike. the stock rear pads go bye bye in like 12 hours of riding. Recommend as my husky dealer did that you pick up a battery tender and a set of leads. I have the leads mounted on my battery and I plug the bike in continuously while here at home. keeps the battery sharp as a tack. That 510 kick starter is there for you and you have the younger leg to kick it, but I prefer as well maintained battery charge.

break in the suspension befor you get it re-valved.maybe with your weight and size you dont need it revalved....The fork settings are race stiff, you will want to soften them up less compression and add in rebound should do the trick. The rear shock sag setting will change after you ride it like 6 hours.

Change the oil, filter after the 30 min break in ride and again soon there after both changes will find metal grit in the screens. You'll need to drill out the bar ends to fit hand guards bolts. use a 17/32 or 9/16 drill bit, some cutting oil and a friedn to hold the bar. The stock bars are super strong and thick. This bike is not like the DRZ in that all the stock components are very good. That will save you money. No need to open the air box it allready is so open that when you wash the bike you need to remove the seat and place a plastic bag over the battery and air box then put back the seat and wash the bike.

Roosterperformance.com is your source for armor protection. protech enduro concepts has a great bar riser steering stabilizer mount for the stock 7/8 inch bars . but at your height i bet the stock bar mounts turned out (rotated out)will be just right.

Like I said the euro models come with a license plate rear fender. I know they have those available in the states as MotoXotica got some delivered by mistake when he orderd new replacement plastic. So the bike has the elctrinics for blinkers as the digital display has a turn signal indicator. probably you can get Husky turn signals for the bike.

anyways it' a great bike and a very fair price, in fact a deal. they are asking the same price for the Honda CRF450X.... A WRF owner just told me last week he loves is 450WRF but misses the snap of the 510 after riding mine.

oh yeah you don't need to remove the carb to re jet it. Just remove the rear brake resovoir (one bolt) on the right side. Losen the carb intake and motor boot ring screws, Rotate the carb top to the right. Bingo go in the top to get to the needle and go in the bottom to get to the jets..........so EASY! everything on this bike is easy to to do. Removing a wheel is so fast. checking the valves is super easy.

Welcome to the Pack! I had the same feelings when I bought mine but since hindsight is 20-20 it happens to be one of the best decisions I made! (TE-510 over WR450F...)

Your going to love it!!! I have a TE450 and a CR125 (Husky) as one Husky is not enough. 5 of my last 6 bikes have been Huskys and I can get anything I like.

Welcome to the pack.

.....so Sharpie...still waiting on that 401k check...? those take the snail mail route at least mine did last year when I borrowed 2 g took 3 weeks for the dumb check to arrive. How many times have you drove down to the shop to stare at your bike?...or is it home with you now?

Rode mine at Clear Creek for two days. it was a blast. Fremontguy rode it and was thinking it was a 450...when it got off he was like wow that thing alsmost took off without me...:naughty: I said yeah it's the 510.....he rides a KTM 450, when I said it was a 510..then he said oh ok no wonder . :naughty:
